An Admiral Ackbar (Tim Rose) silicone head casting made from the original molds for Richard Marquand's sci-fi fantasy sequel Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Cast after the film rather than as part of the production itself, this lot comes from the collection of the film's creature and makeup designer Phil Tippett.
This unfinished, unpainted pale pink silicone casting of Ackbar's head and shoulders is filled with yellow foam and features empty sockets for eyes to be inserted, as well as visible seams and flash. It is in excellent overall condition with minimal wear from age and handling. Includes a letter of authenticity from Phil Tippett.
Dimensions: 20" x 17" x 10" (51 cm x 43.25 cm x 25.5 cm)
Estimate: $3,000 - 5,000
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
